10 ways to help manage Your Workplace Stress Work stress is not necessarily a negative force. In fact, without a certain level of stress to challenge us, our jobs would be boring and unrewarding. Stress becomes a problem, however, when it reaches such an extreme that we are unable to cope with it. The solution to stress, therefore, is not to eliminate it altogether but to maintain it at a level where it remains a positive motivating force. Here are ten of the best simple strategies for keeping stress in check. They’re easy to remember – and they work… Here are 10 ways to help manage your workplace stress. 1. Create a pleasant work environment for yourself. If you spend a great deal of time in your office, make it pleasant, without being self-indulgent.

13 steps to setting Achievable Goals

By |2020-12-14T11:00:26+10:00December 14th, 2020|Uncategorized|

13 steps to Setting Achievable Goals Goal-setting has been described as ‘the inner technology of success’. It is one of the most important activities you can do. Unless taken seriously, this vital planning task will be futile, producing only a few high-sounding intentions that, for various reasons, are soon forgotten. So, if you want challenging and achievable goals, follow these 13 steps to Setting Achievable Goals... 1. Make sure your goals are realistic. A goal that aims too high, or offers a great deal of risk, with little chance of achievement, leads to frustration and surrender. It’s easy, for example, to say that a goal for the year is: ‘To increase production by 150%’ - but quite unrealistic with inadequate resources and uncommitted staff. 2. Keep your goals simple. If goals are complex, it is unlikely they will be clear and specific enough to focus effort and marshal the [...]

11 Ways to Achieving Success

By |2020-12-14T10:51:53+10:00December 14th, 2020|Uncategorized|

11 Ways to Achieving Success Achieving Success can be highly subjective. Seinfield’s Uncle Leo told everyone who’d listen just how successful he thought his son Jeffrey was. Uncle Leo’s assessment, however, did not meet with unanimous approval (Jeffrey was probably embarrassed, too). In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman defined ‘success’ as ‘talent + luck’ and ‘increased success’ as ‘a little more talent + a lot of luck’. One of the main criteria for success seems to be to have made it to the top in a particular field such as world chess champion, one of the world’s top-ranked tennis players, or the world’s greatest golfer. There are, therefore, some things (behaviors more than traits) that are considered essential – even for those of us with less lofty ambitions. Consider these. 1. Work at it. It’s a cliché, but there is some truth in it: the only place ‘success’ [...]

 As a manager, you can set the tone by implementing simple techniques to provide employees with a bit of fun and enjoyment. But why? Laughter is an important part of being human. Who doesn't love laughing!? We all need to laugh! Especially now in these hard times, where we can sometimes forget to laugh. Here is some information on the importance of laughter! Laughter heals William Fry Jr, the 'Doctor of Humour', has researched the power of humour for over thirty years. He is convinced that laughter is a total body experience, an 'internal massage' that embraces all the body's systems - muscles, brain, nerves, digestion. Following stimulation and exercise caused by laughter, the body relaxes. Indeed, claims Fry, like jogging, laughter is a good aerobic exercise. It aerates the lungs, relaxes the muscles, nerves and heart, expands breathing and circulation, and enhances oxygen intake and expenditure. He says that [...]

Being more promotable is something that we all should work hard at being.  It is a delicate subject and one that should not be taken lightly. The hard part about being more promotable is that you need to determine what your boss will consider promotable behavior and making the right adjustments that will be good for you and for everyone else involved. 1 - Observe Peoples Needs  You need to figure out what you or your boss wants from you first.  This will apply to your personal life and your business life as well.  When you are observing what the needs of everyone are, you will be better able to understand what the importance of it all is.

How to establish a Learning Culture in the Workplace

By |2020-07-24T10:46:15+10:00July 24th, 2020|Leadership, Online Short Courses, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander Leadership, School of Business, School of Leadership, School of Management, Schools, Short Courses, Shortcourses, Soft Skills, Training, Workshops|

It’s one thing to say that you want to be a business or organisation with a learning culture, but to actually see it cultivated is another story. This requires the acceptance of particular attitudes, values and practices that support ongoing learning. Training is a key part of the process when it comes to establishing a learning culture. Learning serves to expand thinking, open minds and encourage individuals to reinterpret their world. Peter Senge identified five disciplines of a learning culture that contribute to building a vibrant and healthy learning culture. Personal Mastery: Cultivate an environment where individual goals are valued and achieved through partnership with the employee and the organisation. Mental Models: The idea that people’s perception of their environment shapes their decisions and behaviour. Shared Vision: Encourage teamwork and sharing by collaboratively setting goals and planning objectives. Team Learning: Valuing group conversation and thinking skills so [...]

11 ways to Communicate Effectively at work

The term ‘communication’ now includes many activities associated with everyday organisational life - oral, face-to-face, formal, informal, personal, interpersonal, nonverbal, and written - which is why so many organisational headaches are attributed to ‘communication problems’. Indeed, a common finding of organisational reviews is that ‘communication needs to be improved’. We spend so much time ‘communicating’, but so few of us give much thought to the essentials of this key management activity... 1. Always work to establish rapport. Without the trust and confidence of others with whom you are communicating, much of what you say will be lost. It is imperative, therefore, that you take time to establish and build rapport. Knowing your audience is a vital part of this process. 2. Attract the attention of your target audience. It’s not what you communicate but how you do it. People are being bombarded with information and have become very [...]

Procrastination is one of the main reasons we don't perform to our full potential. It is a comfortable human habit that is not easy to break. But if you allow procrastination to become deeply entrenched, it can wreck your personal effectiveness and, in turn, the effectiveness of your organisation. Here are a dozen simple techniques that people have successfully used over the years to beat procrastination. Through the application, you can discover which will work best for you... 1. The priorities plan If you are forced into procrastination beyond your control because there are just too many tasks and so little time, do the important things first. Prioritise and give the greatest and immediate attention to the most pressing jobs. 2. The divide-and-conquer strategy If you are procrastinating because of the sheer awesomeness of a task, the key is to break it up into smaller, more manageable components. Once you [...]

Often, the only impression a customer or client gains of your organisation is the one generated by your staff on the telephone. Research has shown that poor telephone etiquette can result in poor public relations and millions of dollars in lost revenue. Having invested large sums of money in equipment to improve communications with customers, some organisations simply forget to invest in the human skills. First, consider the following advice... 1. Know what really frustrates your callers. Organisations have suffered in recent years through staff failure to use the telephone appropriately. Recent research reveals that the main frustrations customers or clients experience today in dealing with organisations by telephone are these: taking too long to answer being put 'on hold' and forgotten being transferred and having to repeat the inquiry being answered by voice mail and other 'machines' not having calls returned music on hold, rudeness, perceived indifference, not [...]

Setting priorities is a decision-making process by which you rank in order of importance the tasks you or your staff members must do. By completing the tasks on your list in order, you will achieve your goals. It sounds easy - but it's not. In fact, priority-setting and sticking to the agreement you make with yourself will be major challenges for you as a manager. Here are several important suggestions to help you draw up a priority list - and make it work... 1. Address management problems first. Give top priority to any problem on your list that is making you ineffective as a manager. If, for example, you have a personal conflict with your superior or your personal assistant, your effectiveness in dealing with other priorities could be seriously hampered. Face such problems immediately; get them out in the open; and devise solutions quickly. 2. Group your priorities meaningfully. [...]
